Bunny Hunt Mint Choc Biscuits!

Find the bunny in this edible game! Remember to let a grown-up check every packet label for allergens (and traces of allergens) before you start.

Ingredients

1 grown-up
The biscuits
100g dairy free spread
60g caster sugar
160g gluten free self-raising flour
20g cocoa powder

The 'grass' topping
50g dairy free spread
1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract
3-4 drops of green natural food colouring
200g egg free icing sugar

Method

1. Take one grown-up and put them in charge. In a large bowl cream together the dairy free spread and sugar, until pale. Add the gluten free self-raising flour and stir to form large breadcrumbs. Pinch a thumbnail piece of mixture and mould it into a mini bunny shape (see video above) and set aside.

2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and lightly grease. Add the cocoa powder to the rest of the breadcrumb mixture and combine. Use your hands to roll it into a thick chocolate log 3-4cm in diameter.

3. Slice dough into 1/2cm thick discs and place them on your baking tray. Underneath one biscuit place your mini dough bunny and press down lightly to make sure it's firmly in place, then chill your biscuits in the fridge for 15 minutes. While your biscuits chill, preheat your oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4.

4. Bake your biscuits for 15 minutes, until firm around the edges (be careful as they will be very hot). Leave the biscuits to cool a little before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

5. The 'grass' topping! Combine the dairy free spread with the peppermint extract, drops of green food colouring and half the icing sugar to form a thick paste. Add the remaining icing sugar and whisk until light and fluffy.

6. Carefully spoon the icing into a piping bag and pipe a ring of 'grass' around the edge of each biscuit to resemble a rabbit hole! Or spread the icing on with a knife and use a fork to make the grass texture.

7. Finally, print and cut out this free Bunny Hunt Scene PDF and arrange them around your 'bunny hole' biscuits. Now your edible game is ready!! The lucky person who picks up the bunny biscuit wins a bonus treat... you just have to decide what that treat is!
